MAN Diesel & Turbo and AKA have received an order in connection with the building of a multi-purpose supply vessel for a federal Russian agency.


Delivery is scheduled for March 2018 in St. Petersburg and marks the first successful collaboration between the two partners since MAN Diesel & Turbo bought a 40% share in AKA – the electric-and-hybrid-systems company – in June 2017. The order comprises 4 × MAN 7L21/31 GenSets, including alternators, with AKA’s scope of supply for the order covering:

  • complete 690V main switchboard
  • 690V-to-400V transformers
  • electric motors for main props and thrusters
  • frequency converters for electric motors
  • the drive control and power-management systems.

"This specialist vessel, with its unique operational demands, showcases MAN Diesel & Turbo’s competence as a solution provider and the broader capability we now possess with AKA’s energy-management expertise," said Wayne Jones, Chief Sales Officer – MAN Diesel & Turbo. “Encouragingly for our new partnership, the previous vessel in this series was equipped with an identical propulsion package, but from a different supplier.”
